It all began when TI heard there was a suicidal man atop the Colony Square building in Atlanta—a building that just so happens to contain the popular V103 radio station. Naturally, the station’s DJs were talking about the melee and the madness surrounding the scene.
Before long the rapper called into the station wondering if there was any way he could lend a hand. They quickly cooked up the idea to videotape a short message from TI, who showed up on the scene shortly afterwards. He briefly summarized what he said in the message as follows:
“I told him it ain’t that bad. It’ll get better, to put the time and effort into making it better…I just reminded him know that I know. It looks bad right now, but it can turn around.”The man agreed to come down from 22nd floor rooftop to be greeted by TI in the lobby. Police have decided not to press charges against him.
The authorities are pleased that the celebrity was able to coax the man down. One officer was quoted as saying “…We’re happy it ended the way it did, and we thank him.”
